Since I switched to Pure-FTPD I noticed the users listed in /etc/ftpusers are allowed to log in, instead of blocked.

Does blocking users require a different method with pureftpd (compared to proftpd) ?

Thanks, I might try that. Although it seems that pam authentication is disabled by default in pure-ftpd.

From /etc/pure-ftpd.conf

Code:
# If you want to enable PAM authentication, uncomment the following line

# PAMAuthentication             yes
I don't really understand why it has to be so complicated to block users in pure-ftpd.
